@Nanook[/USER] is up that way.
Word is that sometime within the next several months the entire rack is getting replaced with something. At this point I have no idea with what. Rumor has it that Paulson/GPI no longer will supply Canterbury with replacement chips. I do know the director of casino operations on a first name basis (and he knows me too) so sometime when I see him and it is convenient I will ask about what is coming and what the whole story is. I am quite sure he will tell me.
In any case for the time being these are live and there has been no official cancellation notice so I can get an unlimited # of these at face. I have offered this elsewhere and will do so again here. I am willing to harvest just about any number (within reason) of blue $1, yellow $2 or red $5 and pass them on for Face + shipping + any sort of tip you want to give me for the effort of sorting through chips to find the nice ones and running them off to the PO. I would be happy to get the higher denominations too ($10, $25, $100 or $300) but those seem pretty cost prohibitive. I play 3/6 limit sometimes when I am waiting for a bigger game so while I do this I can sort and pocket usually a barrel or 2 before I get a seat at a bigger game. 8/16 and 20/40 are regular games for me so it is super easy for me to sort and leave with a rack or more of yellows or reds if someone wants them. Obviously this offer likely has a "good until" some future date which at this point is unknown.
Even though these are a high quality plastic BJ chip that is very durable since many have been in play since 2000 probably 80-90% of all chips have faded inlays and/or some damage to the actual chip, but the good news is there have been replacements relatively recently on all 3 chips mentioned $1's, $2's & $5's and it is easy to sort through chips while you are playing poker & get nice white inlays. Here are a couple pics of old vs newer/nicer chips:
Labels come off quite easily with a utility knife and they would be an easy re-label project. As can be seen in the pic below these are the nicer weighted S2's
